The Wednesday Hodge Podge – Round 3

1. It’s a brand new month…share one thing you’re looking forward to in October.
I think I said in a past hodge podge post, this time of year is not my favourite. I am looking forward to the fact that things are a bit more chilled out in October compared to September. But it’s goodbye to Summer, light nights and all the fruit and veg that I love! :(

2.  Is chivalry dead?  Explain. 
I think it could be dying. And I actually think us women have a lot to do with that, as the feminist ‘girl power’ movement has made the mistake as trying to be the same as guys as opposed to being different but equally valued. However, I don’t think it is dead. There are those moments where you see that chivalry is very much alive and well still.

3.  On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts comic strip made its debut.  Which character is your favorite?  Which character is most like you?  (Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Shroeder, Snoopy, Woodstock, or Pig Pen)  If you need a description click here .

I’ve never really seen the Peanuts comic strip. So going by the descriptions, probably a cross between Marcie and Peppermint Patty…? So I just took this ‘Which Peanuts Character are you? Quiz which Joyce linked to. Apparently I’m most like Lucy…!

4.  What’s something you’re competitive about? 

Cranium. And Trivial Pursuit.

5. October is National Popcorn Popping Month…are you a fan?  How do you like your popcorn? 

Is it really? Who knew there was a national popcorn month!! I love to make my own popcorn with kernels, and I melt butter, honey and cinnamon cover the popcorn with it and pop it in the oven a bit. It’s super sticky but tastes so yummy!

6.  When did you first realize the world is small? 

Ummm…I think I’ve always known this. Like I’ve said before – I’m a natural born networker!

7.  In terms of architecture, what’s the most beautiful building you’ve seen up close and in person?

Without a doubt, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I absolutely adore the work of Antoni Gaudí. I sadly have no pictures from seeing his work in Barcelona because I had borrowed my Mum’s camera (as mine had not arrived in time for my 21st birthday – I visited Barca a few days later) and it was stolen on my first morning in the city. I love the colour, the detail, the imaginative side of it.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Right now, I’m trying to get all my Mum’s ‘gadgets’ sorted before she heads to Oklahoma to see her best friend. You know, her kindle, the iPod etc which she only uses when she goes to Oklahoma. And doesn’t know how to use very well. If at all. I want to make this clear people – if anyone buys my Mum something technical as a gift ever again, they will face my wrath. I’m sure this is more hassle than it’s worth!

  1. I’m with you – I never like to see summer end. I love the warm temps, and the long daylight hours, and the “summer state of mind.”

  2. We are a popcorn loving family and I can’t wait to try your cinnamon, butter and honey recipe. Yum! I took the Peanuts quiz…I need to go back and change my answer, ha! I hope you have a great day!

  3. i am a Lucy as well. My kids want me to be technical but like your Mom I am not technically inclined. My SIL links my posts for me as well.

  4. Your popcorn sounds fabulous : ) And Barcelona! Amazing architecture, unique to that city which makes it more interesting I think. Good luck with your gadget updates. My mom frequently tells me her email is ‘broken’ Sigh. Course I’m sure I make my girls sigh too…I’m not as bad as my mom, but definitely not as savvy as my daughters.

  5. I’ve never thought about putting honey and cinnamon on popcorn, but it sounds delicious! I would love to visit Barcelona one day…I’ve read a lot about it. I am relentlous when it comes to Trivial Pursuit…love that game!

  6. I am surprised that you haven’t seen Peanuts. I guess because it was a big part of my youth with the comic strip and especially the holiday shows, I guess I think everyone loves it as much as I did.
    Your popcorn sounds amazing. Never heard of popping corn in the oven. Will have to try that one! Thanks for the tip.

  7. @Lighthousegal – the popcorn is made in the microwave, but after you put the melted honey/butter/cinnamon mixture over it – pop in the oven for a wee bit to harden the mixture onto the popcorn!
